    I've already seen the new powerbooks being refered to as Albooks. Personally, I think it's dumb and corny. The Tibooks sounded cool, but not this.

    I suggest we call it the Lumibook (pronounced loo-mee book). Why? It's made of aLUMInum and the keyboard ilLUMInates. What do you guys think?

    I'd hate for these cool new powerbooks to be labeled something corny. I know you do, too.

    TiPB Extreme

    Since they are already using this for the "Extreme Airport" technology, why not for the TiPB.

    PowerBook Extreme
    Extreme PB

    How About the fast food style:

    PB [Super Sized / King Sized / Biggie Sized]:D

    Very, very shine get.

    Nah, I'm gonna refer to it as:

    Mini-PB

    (see Apple ad) :p

    It is almost- full function and from the pics looks nice enough, I'm gonna call my apple store and see when they will get them in. :)

    And you thought Albook was corny? Im sorry, but Lumibook
    is waaaaaaaaaay cornier. But you are correct when you
    say that they need a new name. how about. ltibook for
    the 'little' tibook, and Btibook for the 'big' tibook? Just
    simple, and short.

    I used to call it the Alumbooks, but I think

    Alubook

    has a better ring to it.

    I'm personally going back to PBG4: PB12" and PB17". Feel free to use DuoG4 (12") and cinemaBook (17") though

    hmmm, I'd say mini-book or miniPB and possibly cine-book or CinePB....or 17"PB.
    What is Apple refering to it as?

    I'm gonna call them the "small" one, the "regular" one and the "big" one. That is it.

    this is how it should,before they were tibooks

    So we should have small Albooks and big Albooks. Albooks sounds great to me

    maybe if your name was Al it would. lol.
    you guys are looking in the wrong direction, before the Tibooks they didnt call the powerbooks nicknames based on the material they were made from, and aluminum isnt really as catchy so they would give it a whole new name probably.
    I'm not very creative though so I don't know what. something to do with cinema sounds good though for the 17" one.

    the SuperBook is probably the best name I have seen. And it applies to all three products. For the SuperDrive capability of course. I think I'll start calling it that.

    I don't think we need a standard nickname -- some people don't even know what TiBook means...

    That said, I like MiniBook/CineBook (CBook?).

    How about:

    XBook (Extreme Book) -- sounds a lot like xBox though

    DBook (DDR Book)

    PBX/PBEx (PowerBook Extreme)

    edit: SuperBook sounds good to me too.

    Just think the Apple Discussion area is just calling them

    PowerBook 12/17

    But where are the usual internal names lately?

    Well...Aluminum in the rest of the world is called AluminIUM.

    So how about the "Minium" for the 12" Powerbook
    and the "Maxium" for the 17" Powerbook.

    I think that's sort of catchy and cool, eh?

    Found this in another thread (posted by NHMac):

    Big Al

    I think Al Jr. is better than Mini Al though...
